On the 28th of March the school did a sponsored cake sale for Sport Relief. It had been organised by a group of five Year 4’s, led by Jack Bryant. They had been talking with head of school (Mrs Jones) and having talks with each other and coming up with ideas.
After around 2 weeks of hard work and planning the day finally came! They had had hundreds of cakes donated for selling. The hour came of the first round of the sale! W4 helped get the stalls up and get ready when W4 cleared off we did the final preparations and we had a last team talk… Then we all got into positions and the first year three class came in…
The Year 3’s got through quickly then the Year 4’s came flooding in and it got really noisy and it got a bit manic. This was positive though, as the target was a lot of money.
At last they got through 12 classes and there was still loads of cakes ready to be sold and we rolled on into play time. It was manic once again and to up the amount of money we got a charity bucket at the door. Playtime felt like it went on for ever and then people stopped coming in and there were still more cakes to sell! They finished selling them after school. We finished, packed away and the counting commenced – there was loads of money raised!
The event raised £400.00 which was announced in assembly and everyone’s mouths were open!! There was a massive clap of “WELL DONE TO THE TEAM!

A great year has been had in the Junior School kitchen. Here is a quick round up of our cooking year!
Year 6 have made Koulourakia (Greek butter biscuits) and have just made bread to incorporate their food tech/science topic for this last half term. They also made matzah bread to consolidate their learning about Passover in RE.
Year 5 have made volcano buns while they were studying volvanos in Geography.
Year 4 had a choice to make space cakes or Easter cookies
Year 3 made bug biscuits earlier in the yearas part of their minibeast topic and have just finished making fruit muffins as part of their food tech for this half term.
Some children were also lucky enough to take part in our Red Nose Day cooking, challenge days and lunchtime cooking club, when we make yummy chocolate cookies.
Many thanks to the small army of “cooking mums” and “grandma” who have regularly come in to school to help the children. Without them the children would not have this opportunity from which they learn so much and get so much enjoyment.
If anyone feels enthused to help next year, it can be suited to your availability, so please let me know 🙂 The children and I would love to see you………

As part of Anne Dale’s regular commitment to helping charities, the whole school raised money for Red Nose Day (over £300) in a fun filled day of baking, biscuit decorating and the Great Anne Dale Bake Off!
During the day, every child in the school took part in a biscuit decorating activity, provided very kindly by the school’s PTA. As you can see from the images, children produced a wide variety of decorated biscuits. Some children were also selected to take part in the Bake Off, representing their classes, baking cakes for the afternoon judging.
In the afternoon, 2 cakes from each class’ batch were offered to a governing panel (comprised of school governors and even members of the OfSTED inspection team!). After rigorous tasting, judging and comments from the judges, B4 were announced the winners of the Great Anne Dale Bake Off! Well done B4!

On Friday 11th July 2014 a group of Year 5 girls held a cake sale in aid of Cancer Research UK.
All the cakes were baked by the girls themselves and the sale was very successful!
In all they raised a fantastic £67.62 for this very worthwhile charity.
Well done girls and big thanks to all who bought the cakes!
Well done and thank you to all those that helped with the recent Charity Children in Need Cake Sale on Friday 15th November!
The event was a real success and the children certainly enjoyed the copious amount of cake which was consumed throughout the day!! Well done to Mrs Thornbury in particular for her excellent organising of the event and her team of willing cake sellers! We raised over £200 for Children in Need… Here are just a few of the magnificent cake offerings from the day!
